WhatsApp Desktop Will Soon Allow Users to Hide Chats

It is high time the feature was made available on laptops and desktop computers.


Three years ago, WhatsApp added the option to lock the app with a password to prevent illegal access, although this feature is still only available on mobile devices.

Given the popularity of WhatsApp Desktop, it is high time the feature was made available on laptops and desktop computers.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has finally begun developing Screen Lock for the desktop client. Although it is not yet included in the beta version. The report makes it clear that it is still being evaluated and will eventually be added.

When Screen Lock is activated, like in the screenshot, a password is required each time you start the software. This might be helpful if you share the PC with someone else. Screen Lock will be optional through settings, and you can turn it off at any moment, just like WhatsApp on iOS and Android.

Because the functionality is still being developed, some text and app icons are missing from the screenshot.

Additionally, the password will only be kept locally for privacy purposes rather than being shared with WhatsApp. In the event that you forget your password, you can log out of WhatsApp Desktop, And log back in simply using your phone to scan the QR code.

Additionally, certain users can now access this functionality after installing the most recent native build of WhatsApp beta for Windows. Following the announcement that WhatsApp is broadly providing the capability to make polls on WhatsApp for iOS!

It was announced exactly one month ago that the following new features—shortcuts, online status. And polls—had been made available to some users after installing its beta for Windows 2.2242.0.0 upgrade.

After installing the beta for Windows 2.2246.2.0 update, select beta testers received the ability to make polls. And it will gradually be made available to more users over the next few days.
